But she feels there’s always been one missing ingredient: cannabis.

“I’m very focused on moving past the stigma of cannabis and showing that it really is something that can make your life and your relationships so much better,” she said.

With recreational consumption being made legal in a growing number of states, Peckler believes the stigma surrounding marijuana is starting to fade.

But she also believes the one thing that will completely remove that stigma – and the attendant legal problems cannabis use poses when it comes to getting things like life insurance or advertising a pot-related business on a media platform like Facebook – is federal legalization.

“I talk to a lot of people who have faced stigma when it comes to dating and finding someone who accepts them for their cannabis consumption,” she said.

“It is really important that whoever you’re with doesn’t judge you for it, and accepts you for how it enhances your life.” Back home in Chicago, Peckler worked in finance for a while.

The rule at her mixers is the same one she preaches in life: Everything in moderation.

“If you use cannabis in a way that it does kind of suck the motivation and drive and ambition out of you, then that’s never a good thing,” she said.

“If you always feel like you can’t be yourself in front of someone, you can’t completely let them in, then those insecurities will just continue to grow,” Peckler said.
